Charles Bukowski Ten Times: Nine Photographs by Tim Petros. Fine; 10 loose photographs in a black linen custom clamshell case. From an edition of ten, plus two artists proofs, this being copy number 3. Signed by the photographer on the limitation page. Print size 11 x 14, image size 6 x 8 3/4 inches. Archival ink jet prints on Crane Silver Rag paper. In 1981 Petros, a staff photographer for a Los Angeles area magazine, was assigned to photograph Bukowski at his San Pedro home. A small number of the photographs were published but many have never been seen. The photographs are remarkably different from the vast majority of those taken by Michael Monfort, Bukowski's semi-official photographer, and allow an unusually intimate look at a relaxed Bukowski enjoying the moment. Quite a production, with crisp and detailed photographs and high production standards. Very, very nice, in a small edition. At the list price.
